5. Is the weight of the system. Too little weight with the same heat generation will cause a much larger rise in caliper and fluid temperature.
ok so 3. has absolutly nothing to do with the brake in any physical form.. so scrath that...
and 4. the weight of the braking system?.. directly related to heat transfer... wtf r u talking about.... maby you ment the weight of the car....
